When you are depressed, you lack energy and motivation, and want to isolate, which is one of the worst things you can do. Negative thinking drags you further into a hole, and staying alone with your thoughts can make the depression worse. I will help you evaluate your thoughts and your situation more objectively, and give you ideas about how to begin to pull yourself out of the darkness. Trying to do it alone can just prolong it. Sometimes you just need a hand to pull you up. I can do that.

Everyone experiences depression from time to time. I consider it to be one of many normal human emotions. But when we can't shake the feeling and it begins to take over making it difficult to enjoy even the basic pleasures of life there's a problem that needs to be addressed. In treating depression I like to take a holistic approach looking at a number of factors including one's experiences growing up, current life stressors , physical health and genetic predispositions among others. In understanding one's life within this larger context I can help my client to avoid stepping into the same emotional traps that have tended to perpetuate depression.

Depression is often the illness hiding in plain sight. It’s difficult to get help as depression has the ability to drain you of your will and sense of agency. I work with people suffering with moderate to severe depression. My approach is to find out what is happening now in your life that is causing you distress, your response to it, and also recognize any repetitions of events, relationships or behaviors which may be pulling you down. I work both short and long term. Symptom relief is the immediate goal, whereas a longer-term goal may be to identify any underlying issues triggering the depression.

This is a broad broad category. There are as many things that people call depression, and as many kinds of depressed people, as there are shades of color. The first step is to rule out physical problems – there are several that masquerade as depression – and then to rule out the simple solutions. Any good self-help book or website can give you advice on coping with the inertia that is so problematic in depression. If those are not helping enough, it is time for a careful assessment of your particular brand of what you might be calling depression. It can involve any mixture of anger, resentment, internal pressure, fear, and more. How we handle all that depends on what we find

Depression is a feeling that can feel incredibly heavy to hold. Sometimes we experience challenging life events that leave us feeling much sadness, grief, inner pain and lack of joy, which interfere with our daily functioning. That is called depression. With Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (challenging unhelpful thoughts) and psychodynamic modalities, I can help you work through that sadness, heaviness and pain, so that you may begin the journey of healing work. This is the first step towards holding the sadness, addressing yourself in a safe space so we can slowly help you process and shift to start feeling lighter and start seeing the sunshine and tasting the small joys in everyday life.

We all do our best to have an abundance of hope in our lives. Sometimes circumstances, emotional wreckage and frustration prevent our reaching our goals and expectations. By identifying the emotional toll charged by an endless cycle of frustration, a personal plan of growth will be put in place. This approach short-circuits frustration and provides hope now and into tomorrow. Dr. Eljay has 20 years of counseling experience in lessening this burden.
